We were talking to some friends at church yesterday and out of the blue Wade said, "It was 5 months ago today that we started our mission." Yes, it was March 7th when we entered the MTC. Sometimes the time seems to be flying by and others is seems to be a snails pace. But I immediately added to his comment, "we only have 13 months left!!' I am sure when those 13 months end, that it will be really hard to leave this country and the people that we have learned to love here.
We are love what we are doing. Working in the office has given us time to spend together. To laugh at each other. To take care of the administrative part of the mission. It has given us a wonderful opportunity to get to know our mission president and his wife! And I must say that Wade is learning patience! It is taking patience on my part to watch him learn patience!! Some days that is not easy for either one of us!
But, we know we are where we are supposed to be at this time in our lives. What a blessing to serve our Heavenly Father! What a blessing to learn and understand the gospel better. Our Heavenly Father has a plan for each one of us. We just need to be available to listen and to learn what that plan is for each of us!
